Smart software toolkit makes panel PCs flexible to configure
Embedded computing systems and display solutions provider, Review Display Systems (RDS) has added a range of multi-touch panel PCs from Kontron.
The Web Panel line consists of three high resolution, widescreen IPS (in-plane switching) TFT displays, available in 7.0-inch (1024 x 600 pixels) , 10.1-inch (1280 x 800 pixels) and 15.6-inch (1366 x 768 pixels) sizes. They have integrated PCap (projected capacitive) touch technology and flexible, scalable performance from Arm-based i.MX6 single or dual core, i.MX8M quad core and Intel Atom-based dual and quad core processors.
The Kontron Web panels are supplied with a specially developed, smart QIWI software toolkit with a HTML-5 browser. The toolkit enables quick and easy configuration of the Web panel itself or from an external device, advised Review Display Systems. This offers a wide range of configuration options and features such as network settings, browser appearance and operation, display properties, fonts and logos, keyboard layouts, language options and country-specific settings.
The Web panels feature a robust, optically-bonded glass PCap touchscreen, which is flush mounted in an aluminium or stainless steel frame. All standard versions are designed to offer simple and straightforward panel mounting for use in control cabinets and equipment consoles in industrial environments. All three panels provide an IP65 protection rating on the front side of the panel and feature an operating temperature range of 0 to 55 degrees C.
The 7.0-inch panel has a brightness specification of 450cd/m² and features external dimensions of 200 x 132 x 48mm. The 10.1-inch panel has a brightness rating of 430cd/m² and external dimensions of 265 x 187 x 41mm. The 15.6-inch panel has a specified brightness of 400cd/m and mechanical outline dimensions of 405 x 254 x 60mm.
